In our career, we had the opportunity to guide different groups, most of them architects, we would like to share their comments about us:

We visited Madrid on a Field trip with our Architecture firm. We decided to contact Madrides to help with the selection of areas and buildings to visit in Madrid. This turned out to be a very successful solution.
Rather than making spot visits to selected works of Architecture, we got a selection with a logical sequence, tied together by the history of Madrid´s urban development and the events that led to its form.
We were a large group of 38 people. Werner arranged for a half day´s historic walk in Madrid City centre, a full day visiting selected projects in and around Madrid by foot and bus, and a half day by bike, visiting selected works in Madrid West, Madrid Rio and Matadero.
As a result of current Covid 19 restrictions we were split in two groups with two guides – Werner and Juan - for areas where it was impossible to maintain sufficient distance.
A nightmare set-up for a guide? Werner managed to make things run smoothly – even with face masks.
We were met by guides who were very passionate about their job, about Madrid and, not to be neglected, about food and drink. We got a lot of background knowledge of the city. The tours were very interesting and highly educational as well as entertaining. It was beneficial to get a balanced evaluation of the works of architecture we visited, based on local opinion rather than just your own views.
The use of Audio guides makes it possible to hear everything and be free to walk around and study the surroundings at the same time.
I can highly recommend this type of arrangement because of the insights it allows for, and I can highly recommend Madrides based on the commitment, passion, and knowledge of their guides.
we had the pleasure of being guided by Werner to see housing projects in Madrid. he arranged a full day program for our office (23 people) and with him we followed the city's development and housing projects. His broad knowledge of the history of the city and its architectural development were remarkable. We were also impressed with his sensitivity to accommodate all our group needs. thank you Werner for this great introduction!
We had the pleasure to be guided by Werner who gave us a historical, political, architectural and cultural experience of Madrid.
Werner’s passion, insight and knowledge of Madrid impressed us all. We learned how a city has developed from the early beginning until today, and how the geography and society inflicts on the growth of a capital city. Your help, flexibility and recommendations during the preparation of our 2,5 days visit were precious.We are all very satisfied with the program, the organization and the food. We highly recommend Werner Durrer for his guiding. Thank you Werner for this wonderful experience and for a great time in Madrid!

Better late than never! Even though, my client has already written some words about your good job, I juts wanted to say from mye side that it was a pleasure working with you. You were very flexible and willing to cooperate all the way to put together the best program for my architect client and 50 people with different wishes for interior design and exterior architecture. You are very proffessional and managed to get the logistics to work as well. I hope we can come back with more architect groups! thank you very much Werner!!
We were a group of 50 architects and interior designers visiting Madrid for 3 days. Werner was responsible for the program for both architecture and interior design. This was a logistic challenge coordinating sights, transports and meals. This Werner handled professionally and everything worked smoothly to our satisfaction. The way Werner brought his city map and gave us the total urban history of Madrid was amazing. This was done over the 3 days. With his brilliant technique he was drawing and explaining the city development as traveling through its different parts. Werner also explained and analyzed the different architectural sights giving us a deeper understanding of both design principles and the final building. On behalf og the whole group; thank you Werner for a truly satisfying visit to Madrid. Our best recommendation.
